AKORN Financial Advice has announced the promotion of Colin Taylor to director of mortgages, equity release and protection and the appointment of four new team members, including head of financial planning, Daniel Armitage.

This is in response to huge customer demand for help and advice in managing their finances and finding ways to save money in these difficult times.

AKORN has also launched a specialist and low-cost service aimed at bridging the financial advice gap for brand new businesses and the self-employed - sectors hit particularly hard by COVID-19.

Angelo Kornecki APFS, AKORN’s managing director and Chartered Financial Planner says: “Colin’s promotion reflects his incredible motivation and dedication to make a real difference to people’s lives, our whole ethos at AKORN Financial Advice. As a result of Colin’s hard work, the Mortgage and Protection side of AKORN has grown massively, creating opportunities for more advisers. We are delighted to be in a position to offer new employment in these tough times."

“Two of our new appointments are in Mortgage advice, allowing us to bolster our offering. This is such positive news in the current difficult times because it means we can help more people. Your mortgage is one of your biggest expenditures and we are saving people significant amounts of money by finding them the best deal,” Angelo explains.   

AKORN are seeing a rise in demand for mortgage advice, including first-time buyers and buy-to-let investors. The latest figures from HMRC show residential property transactions in December 2020 were 31.5% higher than in December 2019.

“Spending so much time at home, people are demanding more from their property and without holidays or big Christmas festivities this year, the property market is very busy,” says Angelo.

AKORN’s growth has also enabled them to launch a new pension start up service, managed and delivered by newly appointed Head of Financial Planning, Daniel Armitage. Offering specialist pension advice service for self-employed individuals and start-up businesses, the aim is to provide affordable and efficient solutions for sectors previously left out in the cold.

“We’re passionate about helping young professionals, small business start-ups and the self-employed. We don’t want them to fall through the cracks when it comes to pensions and planning for their future,” Angelo explains.

“We are very good at taking away client pain-points such as helping the self-employed break through any barriers and obtain a mortgage,” says Angelo.

“As much as people are feeling the pinch right now, they are also thinking about their future more than ever and taking their homes, their finances and their savings more seriously.”
